Power Point adapted from Benchmark of Advanced Tiers
BAT. Power Point presentation by Mary Ellen O’Hare,
PBIS Facilitator. May, 2010
Welcome to the Benchmark of Advanced Tiers
Self-Assessment developed and presented by Taryn
Gaskill and Ryan Guffey
To know and understand the purpose of the
To complete the self-assessment
To be prepared to share BAT results with team to
action plan for the 2013-2014 school year
By the end of this presentation you will know the Tier
2/3 evaluation and be able to complete assessment
on-line in order to share results with your team,
staff, and action plan for next year. Today we will
walk you through the big ideas of the BAT and provide
you with next steps in order to complete and share.
Special School District SW-PBIS Evaluation Plan:
Today we are exploring the use of the BAT as you
assess your scaling up efforts as part of our year
long evaluation process.
Where are you in implementation process?
Adapted from Fixsen & Blase, 2005
As you evaluate your scaling up efforts keep in my
mind this visual of the Science of Implementation as
you reflect on your current state of implementation at
all 3 Tiers. For some this information may be baseline
data as you explore scaling up efforts for next year.
For others this may be a chance to monitor your
initial work you implemented this year.
Benchmarks of advanced tiers (BAT)
Lets talk about what the BAT really entails.
Benchmarks for Advanced Tiers (BAT) allows school
Self-assess Tier 2 and Tier 3 implementation within
Designed to answer three questions
Are foundational elements in place for implementing
Tier 2 and Tier 3?
Is a Tier 2 support system in place?
Is a Tier 3 support system in place?
BAT can be used to build an action plan for the next
steps in the implementation process
BAT scores can be compared and tracked on a
The main purpose of the BAT is that it allows school
teams the opportunity to self-assess their systems and
practices as they relate to Tier 2 and Tier 3. You
will be able to analyze areas of strength and
improvement which will be important as you use this
information for future action planning.
Procedures to Complete the BAT
Completed by Tier 2 & Tier 3 team involved in behavior
Reflects the consensus (majority) of team members
Can be completed by team as a group or by each member
For items completed individually on which there is
disagreement, team discusses and comes to consensus on
If no team for Tier 2 or Tier 3 in school, individuals
with most knowledge of Tier 2/3 involvement should
complete the BAT
The completion of the BAT is a TEAM process that
utilizes everyone’s voice to come to consensus for one
reflective score. The team will enter only 1 BAT
assessment based on team consensus. Team members that
need to be present in order to submit on-line are
principal, a behavioral expert in your building, Tier
2/3 system team leader if applicable and Tier 1 team
Sections of BAT
A = Implementation of SW-PBIS
Tier 2 & 3 Foundations
B = Commitment
C = Student Identification
D = Monitoring and Evaluation
The next 3 slides provide the breakdown of the
sections which address all 3 Tiers of the BAT.
Tier 2: Targeted Interventions
E = Tier 2: Support Systems
F = Main Tier 2 Strategy Implementation
G = Main Tier 2: Strategy Monitoring and Evaluation
Additional Tier 2 Strategy Implementation
Additional Tier 2: Strategy Monitoring and Evaluation
H = Tier 3: Intensive Support Systems
I = Tier 3: Assessment and Plan Development
J = Tier 3: Monitoring and Evaluation
Scoring Items With Rubric
Before we get started you will need the following
BAT Scoring Guide (prior email, pbis location)
School On-Line Access Information (school code, email,
It may be benificial to have a scoring guide per
As you complete the self-assessment today we would
like to encourage you to reflect on your current state
of implementation as it relates to the correlating
information under a 2, 1, or 0 on the scoring guide. A
Big Idea throughout this self-assessment process is
Documentation. Can your team provide tangible evidence
(ie products) of the given criteria? Documented
processes support a schools ability to sustain and
maintain any system and practice over time. During the
course of this presentation we encourage you to take
time after each section to self-score using the paper
scoring guide which you will later use to submit your
Foundations - A
These 3 questions are around universal implementation.
Big Idea: #1 we do not use the PIC assessment and the
State of Missouri has not asked that teams complete
the TIC formally. If the SET is apart of you
evaluation this year please provide your best
prediction of your overall score you think you’ll
receive in May. If the BOQ is apart of your evaluation
this year then please use that score. Take a minute to
Foundations - B
The next 3 slides are Sections B, C, and D: These
sections cover foundations which are the building
blocks of effective Tier 2/3 systems and practices. We
will address these 3 slides before scoring.
Section B Focuses on Commitment
2 Big Ideas to pay attention to: One that school teams
have recipricoal communication system between Tier and
Tier 2/3. Secondly, there are systematic decision
rules in place (ie intervention guidelines) that
school teams develop and use to determine access to
Tier 2/3 inteventions
Foundations - C
Section C Focuses on Student Identification
School teams have a documented process for:
student identification which uses multiple data
sources (ie Screening, Attendance, Grades, etc) to
determine entry into various interventions.
Foundations - D
Section D’s Main Point:
Teams have a system to communicate with teachers and
families on a student’s overall progress weekly.
Example: Weekly chart associated with CICO or A note
sharing student’s strenghts and areas of improvement
in regards to social skills Non-example for this
section: would be a daily progress sheet to be signed
Now take time to complete sections B-D
Tier 2 – E
Now we are moving into Tier 2
Main Points of Tier 2 Systems
There is a trained team that develops systems and
monitors data around the implementation of Tier 2
practices and shares that information with
Take a moment to score Section E before moving on
Shift in Focus……..
Items 18-31 focus on the school’s “Main” Tier 2
Defining Tier 2 interventions
Identifying the “main” Tier 2 intervention
For the next two sections you need to identify one
current main Tier 2 intervention that you will
Tier 2 - F
In the Blank provided please write down your main
intervention you’ll be assessing. We will explain F
and G then provide time to score.
The main Tier 2 intervention should align with school
wide expectations and represent the needs of a similar
group of students (ie CICO has the same daily progress
report for all students participating in intervention)
Tier 2 – F cont.
Practice for generalization
DPRs meet criteria
The intervention has documented procedures,
communication and systems that is shared/taught to
staff, students, and families.
Tier 2 - G
Reminder – still on the same intervention – most
common Tier 2.
Section G assess whether or not your intervention has
documented data decision rule that are used to
determine students access to intervention, monitoring
students response to intervention, and when to adjust
or exit intervention.
Please take time to score F and G
Tier 3 - H
The last 3 sections are about Tier 3 the top of the
There are trained staff members who are able to
develop and monitor documented Tier 3 supports.
Tier 3 – H cont.
The team ensures that there is administration and
family participation throughout the process.
Tier 3 – H cont.
Now take a moment to score section H
Tier 3 - I
The next two sections are I and J which look at the
Tier 3 practice of Functional Assessments and
Behavioral Intervention Plans. You will have time to
score after section J
We would like to suggest using a current FABIP to
assess the components outlined in section I.
Tier 3 – I cont.
The following questions look at the behavioral
intervention plans that were derived from a functional
Tier 3 – J
(FABIP and Wrap)
There is a documented process to monitor and gather
data. Now take time to score sections I and J

Access and review current reports for action planning
This now concludes the BAT Self-Assessment. Please go
to the link on the slide to record your schools
scores. As you will notice the assessment site has
changed if you encounter concerns please contact your
evaluation coordinator or the sites on-line supports.
Plan time for Tier 2/3 team to meet and develop action
plan goals for the school’s 2013-2014 PBIS action
Please make sure to contact your evaluation
coordinator when the BAT is completed
Communicate the plan with the Tier 1 Team
Communicate the plan with staff
When scores are entered on-line please a make sure to
contact your evaluation coordinator.
